John Donaldson Hexagonal
Hexagonal is the perfect band to do justice to this exciting and high energy music. Leaving aside the fact that the collective consists of six of the best musicians on the UK scene today, Jason Yarde has worked with McCoy Tyner, giving their sound a distinctive sound and authenticity. They have recorded an album of Tyner tunes and some by Bheki Mseleku, and released them on CD, which will be performed at this Festival gig.
John Donaldson – Piano, Simon Thorpe – Bass, Tristan Banks – Drums, Greg Heath - Sax, Jason Yarde– Sax, Graeme Flowers – Trumpet and Quentin Collins – Trumpet
